When I attended Stephenie and Danny’s wedding dinner last December, there was a liveband, Sandcastle performed many wonderful songs including Ye Lai Xiang (夜来香 in Chinese, fragrance of the night) for the guests of the dinner.

The song was originally sung by Li Xiang Lan in the 40s of the 20th century. Then the song is covered by many popular artists such as Teresa Teng and Fei Yu Qing.

Ye Lai Xiang is a Chinese name of a kind of flower, night blooming jasmine or scientifically known as Cestrum nocturnum. The flower blooms at night and are strongly scented which released at night. The lyric describes the beauty of the flower however it has another hidden meaning of missing a lady when nightfall.

During Stephenie and Danny’s dinner night, Ye Lai Xiang was the last song performed by Sandcastle and I managed to record it and share here:

On a very hot day of December 2010, Stephenie and Danny were married in a traditional Chinese ceremony in front of their closest family and friends, including their adorable daugther, baby Ashley. Stephenie and Danny wore amazing Chinese customs which made the wedding day even more vibrant and joyous from start to finish. It was a true pleasure to be a part of their lovely wedding day.

Stephenie is the sister of my friend, Kenn-Wai. who is also a wedding photographer. He invited to join the joy the of big moment. Few of the good friends, Fred, Angel, and James were also joined to shoot on the very fine day. They have experience in wedding photography so it gave me a good chance to learn from them for the first time.

Congratulation to Stephenie and Danny. Thank you so much for having me along. May you both be happy always.
